Ancient Egypt Gods: Horus

By Edited Jul 4, 2014 0 0

"Let the Eye of Horus come forth from the god and shine outside his mouth." The Pyramid Texts.

Horus is one of the important ancient Egyptians' Gods. The eye is personified in the goddess Wadjet, which means "The Green One". He was worshiped and considered the God of the Heavens. In the old Egyptian history, there was the story of Isis and Osiris who were both gods. Osiris married Isis, and their son was called Horus who is known as "Horus who rules with two eyes". The right eye represents the sun and the left eye represents the moon, and the eye that is seen in all pictures is the right eye.

Horus the falcon-headed god or the lion with the head of a falcon symbolized protection from Evil and Evil eyes of people. The people of ancient Egypt believed that the eye symbol of Horus is a powerful and magical protection against all that is bad in our world and it wards of evil spirits.

According to the old history of Egypt about Gods, Seth who was Horus uncle and his rival for the throne tore his eye out, but then the moon god helped him to heal it again, and Seth was defeated by the power of these eyes, and this power allowed Horus to avenge the death of his father Osiris.

That is how it became a belief that when you wear the eye of Horus on a pendant, amulet, or any kind of jewelry which are made of gold, silver, lapis, or porcelain. It is also believed that if you put it in your house as a picture or a small statue, it will protect you and your home from all evil, provide wisdom and prosperity, and can also help heal the sick.

Horus also represented justice and rightness in the world by controlling the six senses, Touch, Taste, Hearing, Thought, Sight, and Smell.

Until today, there are many Egyptians (especially women) and visitors to Egypt who wear the eye of Hours in different ways just as a way to feel more protected.

He was associated with religion, which was the reason that some of the later kings called themselves by his name and were believed to be his avatar on earth, hoping to get the power of protection and healing from the name, especially that one of his names was (the god of the heavens), and he was Worshipped by the ancient Egyptian throughout their history.
